ODE TO THE RED HEADED BRIDE

Redheads come in all shades: auburn, ginger, cinnamon, chestnut, henna, strawberry blond, carrot top.  Hair isn't the only thing that characterizes a real redhead though.  Fair, sometimes alabaster skin with a peach undertone and freckles are all hallmark of the quintessential Celtic beauty, marking shades like ivory, peach and eggshell a redhead's best pick.  So why are these yellow tones best?  A redheaded complexion is most likely fair and pale ergo most whites and stark whites will wash out the complexion. On the other hand, ivory and eggshell tones will warm up skin tone and once they're put on do seem to belong to redheads exclusively. Silk whites--which is to say off or muted whites like the shade in the header photo and second photo below can work for the bride with red hair as long as they stay fairly matte or muted . . .

When hermes handbags online comes to fashion, most women will do something and everything that they can so as to look their greatest. Though louis vuitton wallets are extremely high-priced, most women actually discover a technique to purchase their own cheap omega watches. This has pressured them to look for discounted charges whenever they're shopping for these cheap christmas gifts. The most important thing is the fact that they've purchased authentic women rolex watches.
